Grace* shook with anger as she approached her colleague…

… an old-school project manager, Martin*, who tended to assume too much power when working on projects with people who didn’t report to him.

“May I speak with you for a minute?” she managed to squeak out, trying hard to steady her voice and keep her emotions in check.

He looked up at her, read the emotion on her face, and replied, “Sure.”

They ducked into a nearby conference room. Grace cleared her throat. “Martin…”

He started to interrupt her and dominate the conversation in his usual way, but Grace continued.

“Let me finish,” she asserted in a shakily angry voice. “It has come to my attention that you approached one of our associates with an opportunity to work in a different role simultaneous to her current role. I understand this took place even after her manager and I advised you that now is not a good time considering the team’s extremely limited bandwidth.”

Martin tried to interject again, but she continued.

“It has also been brought to my attention that you’re undermining our leadership team with derogatory remarks. I don’t understand why you continue to overstep your boundaries with our associates who do not report to you. We’ve let a lot go in the past. But this latest act is egregious, blatantly disrespecting and disregarding our leadership team, who is responsible for the professional welfare of our associates. This has to stop.”

Are you resentful because you’ve had trouble enforcing boundaries?

Grace certainly did, so she wouldn’t let Martin off the hook when he tried to placate her.

And it’s not easy. It’s hard to navigate tense scenarios, especially in the work environment, without becoming a doormat.

But as you surely know: Boundaries that are weak or non-existent spell trouble.

When you don’t establish and maintain them, you get a reputation of “that person” where anything goes. You take so much abuse until, one day, you’re ready to erupt like a volcano!

You wonder how you’ve become “that person.”

Your lack of self-esteem belies your “confident” words and actions. You may try to fool others, but they see through…

Secretly comparing yourself to others and feeling inferior when you do.

You avoid asking for what you want or need because you feel you don’t deserve it.

Worse yet, you hold back in discussions because you think no one cares what you have to say.

It’s time you confront reality, appreciate your uniqueness, and live your best life!

Stop heading directly for the clearance rack!

Why do we do the things we do?

We all have strategies for everything we do in life. Strategies that have been developed are often buried at the unconscious levels.

Strategies that helped us survive at some point, such as: being non-assertive and conflict-averse, having little to no boundaries, avoiding eye contact, putting up walls, isolating yourself from others, taking responsibility for other people’s “stuff,” eating/feeding our feelings, being people pleasers, putting the needs of others before our own, playing small, working all the time like it’s going out of style, being afraid to negotiate for more money or ask for a raise, being frugal and thrifty, even while on vacation, or going directly to the clearance rack even though you can afford the full price, to name a few.

Often, even after that strategy no longer serves us well, we default to that strategy out of pure habit driven by the unconscious mind.

Individual coaching can help you dissect your strategies, unearth the reason behind them, and create new, more useful strategies that actually serve you well in your current circumstances.
